The London Borough of Richmond upon Thames and London Borough of Wandsworth present a unique opportunity to be part of a team who are working together to create a ground-breaking shared staffing structure across both boroughs.
We are recruiting to two Public Health Lead roles to support both councils to improve the health and wellbeing of the local populations of Richmond and Wandsworth. The posts are permanent positions within the Healthcare Public Health Team and the Children's, Sexual Health and Regeneration Team.
The Public Health Lead for Healthcare Public Health will also include leading on quality assurance, long term conditions pathways and supporting Clinical Commissioning Groups in both boroughs.
The Public Health Lead for Children's, Sexual Health and Regeneration will include setting a strategic vision for schools, leading and implementing the sexual health strategies in both boroughs.
Additional responsibilities for both roles will include identifying the health needs of the population, advising on and developing strategic plans for commissioning services to meet those needs, providing commissioning support to the NHS and other Council departments, and highlighting inequalities and improving outcomes for all residents. The post holders will provide specialist Public Health advice and leadership and lead significant multi-agency and multi-disciplinary projects across two councils. These posts will offer the opportunity to be involved in different aspects of Public Health, and flexibility will be important.
In return, we can offer you working arrangements that will enhance your work-life balance. These may include compressed hours, home working and part time working (dependent on service need). We also offer a generous holiday allowance of 31 days plus bank holidays.
